1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data find dy/dx of log3*arccsc2^x 3. The attempt at a solution I got up to 1/ln3csc2^x * 1/2^x(sqrt(2^2x-1) However there's also a 2^x*ln2 after that How is that? In otherwords how would I derive 2^x would i treat it like e^x or something? Also if its x^x why would that be 1+lnx?
